The Most Incredible Car Collection Ever Is Going Up For Auction In Italy


If cars aren't your thing, there are motorcycles, boats and an insane amount of collectibles.

Auction sites are good fun to browse. If you're lucky you'll come across a special car, or even a private collectionmade up of rare cars. This one scheduled for late November by RM Sotheby's inItaly involves what is quite possibly the coolest, biggest and most amazing carcollection ever assembled. In fact, the amount of cars, motorbikes, boats andspares is so vast that the auction has to take place over three days. Theauction should see worldwide interest. In fact, it definitely will. Collectors like Jay Leno should be in attendance.

The auction will take place in Italy at Fiero Milano, one of the world's largest convention centers. The cars are spread around Italy in various warehouses and are in the process of being transported to the venue. With 430 cars, 150 motorbikes, 60 boats and a plethora of spare engines, wheels, bicycles and more, it's taken some time. It makes sense then that it's being billed as the largest private collection ever to go up for sale at one auction in Europe. We'd love to know who the original owner/collector is, but that's being kept quiet. RM Sotheby's was awarded the job by the Italian government so it's either the deceased estate of a bazillionaire, an international drug dealer or a wealthy spy.
